Socially Acceptable Addictions
I had just spent about an hour and a half at a parent meeting
talking about Internet addiction when two teenage girls asked
to speak with me. Earlier that day, I had spoken to an assembly
of the students of this particular school and now their parents
were coming to hear me. The sessions with the students went
well, so much so that some of them actually returned to the par-
ent meeting with their parents to hear more.
Two of these students were now sitting in front of me pouring
out their hearts with inspiring honesty. Both girls freely admitted
to much of what I discussed that day. These confessions included
spending long hours every day on Facebook and spending most
of their waking hours texting. They spoke openly about not being
able to break the lock of digital connection to their friends. They
slept very little each night, staying up late in their bedrooms
interacting with their smartphones.
